Today we’re going to talk about vitamin D toxicity and the signs you’re taking too much vitamin D.
It’s important to keep in mind that the dangers of vitamin D deficiency outweigh the dangers of getting too much vitamin D. It’s also very difficult to overdose on vitamin D.
Vitamin D works with other factors that support its function and absorption. Certain amounts of vitamin D can potentially have side effects but can be made safe by adjusting the cofactors.
Magnesium and vitamin K2 are the main cofactors that help keep higher levels of vitamin D from becoming toxic. It’s also important to drink plenty of water.
The side effects of vitamin D toxicity typically start to occur when a person is consuming hundreds of thousands of international units (IU) of vitamin D for many weeks.
The #1 sign of vitamin D overdose:
Other signs of vitamin D overdose:
• Kidney stones
• Nerve symptoms (numbness, pain, or tingling)
• Excessive thirst
• Excessive urination
In my opinion, it seems that many cases of vitamin D toxicity occur because of a person consuming too much vitamin D2—not vitamin D3.
There are some big differences between vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. I also don’t think people will see the same benefits after taking vitamin D2 that they would if they took vitamin D3.
A few things you need to know about vitamin D2:
• It’s not as effective as D3
• It’s not as bioavailable as D3
• It’s not as studied as D3
• It doesn’t help prevent fractures like D3 can
• It does help reverse rickets (in infants)
• It has a different effect on depression than D3
• It doesn’t affect the immune system like D3 can
